Back to Principal Evaluation: Standards, Rubrics, and Tools for Effective Performance
If there's a new principal evaluation system rolling out in your school or district, or your system is planning to build one, then this is an invaluable guide to making sure evaluations are based on leadership factors that are most critical to a principal's job.
Based on extensive research and his work in the field, this book provides you with a sound framework for principal evaluation and the practical tools you need to implement a fair and effective evaluation process, including
- Field-tested principal performance standards—six that are based on the principal's work and one that is based on the results of the principal's work.
- Performance indicators that describe what the principal’s duties are and how the principal is expected to perform his or her work.
- A four-point performance appraisal rubric attached to each indicator for evaluating the actual work of the principal.
- Step-by-step design plans, guidelines for successful implementation, and a list of helpful resources to supplement the principal performance evaluation system.
District leaders who are mandating and implementing new principal evaluation systems and principals, assistant principals, and other school-based leaders who will be evaluated by the system need this book to navigate the difficult terrain of administrator evaluation. Leadership academies and professional development programs should also keep this on hand to inform their curriculum.
